Ape Entertainment Creating Cut the Rope Digital Comic for iOS
Who hasn’t heard of Cut the Rope yet? Not too many since it’s on iOS and Android and now, via an announcement at Comic-Con, is being turned into a full digital comic series. Trust us, we’re constantly asking, “Where did Om Nom come from and why does he love candy?”
Now, thanks to Ape Entertainment signing with ZeptoLabs, we’re on the verge of getting the answer to that very question. That’s right, Ape Entertainment is currently developing a full-color digital comic book series for iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad 2).
The comic series will explore the yet untold backstory of the game’s endearing hero, Om Nom, building upon his adventures in the uber-popular mobile game (iOS and Android).
“Its an amazing opportunity to work with ZeptoLab on one of the app world’s most addictive and successful games,” said David Hedgecock, CEO of Ape Entertainment. “The comic book series is shaping up beautifully and we are making something that we know fans of Cut The Rope and fans of good entertainment everywhere are going to absolutely love!”
Of course, in the game, users encounter new characters and unusual obstacles that keep the game entertaining, addictive and most of all – fun to play. Ape Entertainment plans to release the full-color comic book series digitally through a standalone Cut the Rope Comics App in the iTunes App Store in late August.
“Om Nom has become a fan favorite and he has an amazing backstory. This new comic book series will tell that story and introduce fans to a cast of characters and storylines that will unfold in future iterations of the game,” said Misha Laylin, Chairman of ZeptoLab. “As we develop new channels outside of mobile gaming for consumers to engage with Cut The Rope and Om Nom, we’re thrilled to be working with Ape Entertainment. They have done a great job of not only capturing Om Nom’s story, but maintaining the high level of artistic integrity fans of the game have come to expect.”
ZeptoLab has also announced that we’ll soon be able to get our hands on plush Om Noms soon too. I smell another Angry Birds-style success.
